ST. LOUIS — A pedestrian is suing a motor vehicle driver, citing alleged negligence.
Robert Lawson filed a complaint on Dec. 12 in the St. Louis Circuit Court against Zeljko Kvesic alleging that the motor vehicle driver breached his duty to operate a motor vehicle in a careful and prudent manner.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Feb. 24, 2016, he was walking east on Tyrolean with his dog approaching an alley when the defendant backed out of the alley at a high rate of speed and hit him and his dog. He allegedly sustained injuries that caused him to have to pay for medical care and therapy expenses, as well as to lose wages.
The plaintiff holds Kvesic responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to maintain careful lookout, recklessly drove his vehicle at an excessive rate of speed and failed to stop to avoid striking the plaintiff.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks damages in an amount that meets the jurisdictional limits of the court, costs of this action, and any further relief that the court may deem just and proper. He is represented by Rick Barry and Megen I. Hoffman of Law Offices of Rick Barry PC in St. Louis.
